    About this property

    Plumtree Cottage provides an idyllic base to relax, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a holiday in a classic English seaside resort.
    Plumtree Cottage is in a peaceful spot on the edge of Abbotskerswell with rolling fields and woodland beyond. It is a large, south-facing, detached, family home, which has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The property is spacious and is ideal for family or friends to get together. It is set in 2 acres of enclosed garden with terraces and well-positioned seating to enjoy the sun all day. This is the perfect location for beach holidays, walking, cycling, birdwatching and surfing.

    Abbotskerswell village has a good food pub, shop, café and church, mid-way between the edge of Dartmoor at Ashburton with local shops, cafés and restaurants, and the seaside resort of Torquay, which has a theatre, good shopping and harbour. There are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves, beaches and walks to explore, with opportunities for surfing, swimming, diving, sailing, angling and to study the natural wildlife at leisure. Stunning views are to be seen just about everywhere across the bay, out over the English Channel, along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill, or inland towards the tors of Dartmoor.

    This is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth, Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth. Paignton with its zoo, steam railway and sandy beaches are worth a visit. Brixham makes a great day out with its fishing port or catch the boat from Torquay. Explore Totnes, an attractive old town on the River Dart, with river cruises to Dartmouth, where you can visit castles, go shopping or just take in the sights. For golf enthusiasts, a golf course can be found 1 mile away. Newton Abbot, an old market town, is 2 miles away. Discover National Trust castles at Compton, 3 miles and Berry Pomeroy. There are many other NT places to visit, including Greenway, Agatha Christie’s summer home. Explore Dartmoor, with its rocky tors, wild ponies, exquisite walks, horse riding, fishing, cycling, falconry and golf at Bovey Castle, an award-winning course. Don’t forget to stop for a cream tea in one of the many tea shops on Dartmoor. Within a few miles are the two picturesque villages of Chagford and Mortenhampstead, with historic inns, excellent pubs, tea rooms, curiosity shops, tennis courts and the Miniature Pony Centre. There is so much to do in this part of Devon, one visit will not be enough! Beach 4 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    "A beautiful cottage with plenty of space for everyone. The gardens were a delight with loads of seating in sunny spots. The house was clean, well equipped,and had the most comfortable beds of any house we have ever stayed in. The only disappointment was that although it was advertised as pets welcome when we arrived there was a note to say dogs are ONLY allowed in the kitchen and utility rooms, we felt it was very unfair to only mention this on arrival, We expected that dogs are not allowed upstairs but expected our well behaved dog to be allowed in all downstairs rooms to relax with us. We may have chosen a different cottage had we known in advance of booking.That said the owner was very helpful when we had an issue with WIFI. It was sorted out quickly and she sent us a text to ensure it was resolved, so thank you for that and also for the lovely welcome hamper . We would recommend the house to anyone as long as the pet policy isn’t an issue, it is a wonderful house in an ideal location with delightful gardens."

    "Lovely house with an amazing garden. Had a fantastic week here with the family. Unfortunately the WiFi wasn’t working but I didn’t ask the owners to resolve this and we went a week WiFi free which in some ways was nice.The house was excellent for all ages we had a range of people from under one to over sixty in the house and everyone had a fabulous time. There was a lovely welcome basket on arrival which was a wonderful little touch. Would definitely recommend."

    "A lovely big spacious cottage for families to enjoy close to amenities and a fabulous pub in walking distance with fantastic food."
    Roger ‐ 11 Aug 2018
    "Beautiful setting and a lovely property, furnished to a good standard. The grounds are vast and ideal for family sports! Ideal location for exploring Dartmoor, Torquay and Paington...nowhere we wanted to visit was more than 20 minutes away.The Village itself offers very little in the way of amenities, although the Shop has the essentials. A Fish & Chips Van visits on Mondays from 4-6pm outside the shop with good food.A very enjoyable Holiday"
    Collin ‐ 4 Aug 2018
    "Couldn’t fault this lovely cottage. Very well equipped and high quality furnishings. More than lived up to our expectations. Would highly recommend."
    Gillian ‐ 22 Jul 2018
    "Lovely house and beautiful large garden. Lots of space. House very well equipped. Just one snag if you have dogs, the perimeter fence has a small section that is an escape route, with sheep beyond."
    Chris ‐ 8 Jul 2018
    "A beautiful spacious place with gorgeous grounds and a kitchen to die for.Although it is billed as dog friendly, when you arrive you find out that dogs are only allowed in the kitchen and utility room. I would count this more as "dogs tolerated" rather than dog friendly."
    Jean ‐ 2 Jul 2018
    "Extremely spacious and well-appointed property with excellent grounds. The kitchen was especially well equipped and contributed to a fantastic holiday for all of us."
